california, montana and texas is causing an uproar tonight. local law enforcement officials say those stations located in towns a few hundred miles from the border provide essential resources to detain illegal immigrants. the administration plans to relocate 41 agents from those stations and place them closer to the southern and northern borders. but does this add up to better border security? our ed lavandera is in amarillo, texas with that story. >> reporter: the border patrol station in amarillo, texas sits on grassy prairie land on the edge of town. it's home to two border patrol agents. the office is hundreds of miles from the border, and might not be much to look at, but potter county sheriff brian thomas says his deputies patrol interstate 40, a major corridor for human smuggling and he counts on the border control agents for help. what do you think happens now when you come across a group of illegal immigrants that might be trafficked through your home? >> if we don't have any criminal charges on them, we have to let them go. there's not any other choice. >> sheriff thomas fir

now, states have a ton of leeway to decide who is and who isn't eligible for medicaid. texas, the they only cover adults at 26% of the poverty line. it's $11,170 a year. so you could be a single person making $3,000 a year and you're not poor enough to qualify for medicaid. that's part of the reason texas has the highest uninsured rate in the entire nation. in massachusetts, by contrast, they cover working adults up to 133% of the poverty level. this is due to a former governor whose name rhymed with smitt sromney. everyone making up to 133% of the poverty line, they get medicaid automatically. right now, the federal government pays about 57% of medicaid's costs. states pick up the rest. and that's a good enough deal that every single state participates. in the affordable care act for the first three acts, the feds will cover 100% of the difference between wherever the state is now and where the law wants them to go 100%. after 2020, that drops a bit, but only drops to 90%. for every dollar the state puts in, the feds will put in $9. it's an incredible deal. the less you have
